Netherlands at the 2020 Summer Olympics

The Netherlands was scheduled to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo from 24 July to 9 August 2020, but the Games have been postponed to a date not later than summer 2021, because of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.[1] Since the nation's official debut in 1900, Dutch athletes had competed at every edition of the Summer Olympic Games, with the exception of the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis and 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, which the Netherlands boycotted because of the Soviet invasion of Hungary.
